What was once the breakout sleeper hit horror movie of 2013, TheConjuring has now spawned more than a franchise: it is a shared universe, which Warner Bros. intends to build in a ever growing, expansive way. So it’d be best to think on your sins before preparing yourself for the next chapter in the sage, The Nun. As the latest spinoff from the James Wan series, The Nun will follow up on the devilish ghoul in a habit who was glimpsed in 2016’s The Conjuring 2.
Previously set to be written by David Leslie, The Nun ultimately was written by Gary Dauberman, who is working from a story he penned with The Conjuring director James Wan. Dauberman is best known for writing the scripts for Annabelle and Annabelle: Creation. He also co-wrote this year’s smash hit, It. Corin Hardy meanwhile will direct. This is Hardy’s second film after 2015’s The Hallow.

The Nun Trailer
Well…this looks terrifying.
The Nun Release Date
The Nun will scare up audiences when it opens on September 7, 2018. That’s the same weekend that It: Chaper One did so well in last year.
The Nun Cast
Intriguingly, the cast is being led by Taissa Farmiga as Sister Irene. Fans of horror might know her for her work on FX’s American Horror Story. However, she is also the younger sister of Vera Farmiga, the star of The Conjuring films. So the prospect that Farmiga’s young nun heroine might be related to the Warren family in The Conjuring films is an open question. The movie also stars The Hateful Eight‘s Demián Bichir. Bichir, who was nominated for an Oscar for his performance in the 2011 drama A Better Life, will play Father Burke, a priest Rome assigns to investigate the mysterious death of a nun.
